Rick Santorum visited Hamburg Inn No. 2 in Iowa City, Iowa this morning, where he agreed with one voter that he would “turn back the clock” on LGBT equality:

Christopher Patton, a Gary Johnson supporter, stopped Santorum as he approached his table and asked the candidate if he really felt he could “turn back the clock” on progress for gay marriage, considering that some polls show that a majority of Iowans under 30 years of age support it.

Santorum paused.

“Yeah, I do,” he replied.
